Bright and sunny spring days remind us that summer is right around the corner, which means that you should start thinking about air conditioner maintenance now. Follow these steps to ensure that your air conditioner is ready for when you need it most on those hot summer days.

How To Prep Your Air Conditioner For Summer


  1. Change the filter on your furnace and air conditioner now to ensure clean air.
  2. Check, empty, and clean the condensation line at the furnace.
  3. Uncover your air conditioner if you covered it for the winter.
  4. Clean the condenser, fins, fan, and coils.
  5. Remove any debris and vegetation in an 18-inch radius of the AC unit.
  6. Check for damaged insulation around the copper suction line that runs into the house. Replace if damaged.
  7. Turn on the power to the air conditioner unit.
  8. Ensure the fan is spinning, you should hear the compressor on the outdoor unit, and feel cold air coming from the vents.

Save money by installing a programmable thermostat before the cooling season, and testing the unit before it gets too hot. This will help with bills and you will avoid being without cool air while you wait for a professional. If you are unsure about doing any of the above tasks to prepare your air conditioner for summer, a qualified heating and cooling professional will be happy to help.
